The heavy rain we had this morning was needed, but made the morning commute a tough one. The rain moved out of the region for the most part by afternoon, but cloudy skies kept temperatures in the 70s for most of the day.
Showers, some locally heavy will continue along the North Carolina coast early tonight then most of the showers will move out of eastern North Carolina later tonight. A ridge of high pressure aloft building eastward over the Appalachian Mountains will bring rain-free weather from the western Carolinas into the Triangle area tomorrow.
This will support a partly sunny sky after a start with some low clouds and patchy fog. Temperatures will respond and warm into the upper 80s to near 90. A weak disturbance aloft will approach from the northwest on Wednesday with a shower or thunderstorm by the afternoon.
This disturbance sinks southward on Thursday with nothing more than a stray thundershower in the afternoon, but much of the region will be dry most of the day on Thursday.
Have a great evening!
